The crusts are crisp and the red sauce is outstanding, but at Candelari's it's the sausage that really rocks. If you order the create-your-own pizza with Candelari's Italian sausage, green peppers and half the usual amount of mozzarella, you will sink your teeth into the best sausage pizza in the city. The penne with Italian sausage and spaghetti with Italian sausage aren't bad, either.
